Strength of Bridge Wood Pilings Retrofits for Moment Resistance

The research plan comprises four main tasks: (1) Analytical Investigation of as-built and retrofitted bridges. (2) Experimental testing of typical wood species. (3) Experimental testing of retrofitted wood species. (4) Documenting and summarizing the findings in the final report. It is anticipated that three brief progress reports will be submitted after each of the project's critical phases.
